Today Sega released the demo of Valkyria Revolution (originally titled Valkyria: Azure Revolution) on the Japanese PlayStation Store, and if you want to see what it looks like on PS4 Pro, you have come to the right place.
We captured a whopping 203 1080p screenshots of the demo on Sony’s new console, and you can check them out below.
The demo is basically the prologue chapter of the full game, and it’s extremely story-heavy, spanning about an hour with a large chunk of cutscenes wrapping around a single mission. It introduces the main cast on both sides of the conflict, and while the visuals aren’t a technical miracle, the story seems definitely worthy of the Valkyria legacy,.
On top of that, the music by Yasunori Mitsuda is absolutely fantastic, but I guess that will surprise no one. Mitsuda-sensei always does a wonderful job when he writes a game’s score.
It’ll certainly be interesting to see if the narration will be this strong even past the prologue, because in that case we might have a winner in our hands.
Valkyria Revolution will release in Japan on January 19th for PS4 and PS Vita, while the western launch of the game has also been recently announced. It will come in the Spring of 2017, earning itself a fairly unexpected Xbox One version on top of the two on PlayStation platforms.
If you want to see something a bit more animated while the 4 gigabytes of my recording upload (or while you download the demo to see it on your own TV screen), today Sega also released a new trailer, featuring the stern officers of the Rushien Empire and the mecha they control. As you’ll probably notice, they also feature rather heavily in the screenshots below.
But without further ado, I leave you with the gallery.
